AWW! Air France Left Nigerians Stranded At Charles De Gaulle Airport, Paris



Lagos-bound Air France passengers were eft stranded at Charles de Gaulle in Paris on Friday night.

According to online reports, the passengers were at the airport for over 24 hours, sleeping in the lounge. The flight was scheduled to leave Paris by 7.00am on August 25th.

To make matter worse, the airline allegedly  reported the passengers to police after they began to complain.

According to journalist Seun Oloketuyi:

“Lagos bound passengers waiting at Charles de Gaulle Airport Paris, some since 7:00am (Aug 25th) others from about 9:00am for their flight, left by Air France to sleep in the Airport Lounge.
No sympathy or empathy for the women and children. At least put them in a hotel!!! They will be here till 4:00pm of Aug 26th when they say their flight is likely to depart. This is so unfair and unacceptable!”

Facebook user, Mercy Makinde, who posted the photos and videos wrote:

“Do Nigerians really deserve to get treated like this by foreign airlines??? It’s not out of place for Airlines to have operational issues and if that happens you lodge your passengers in a comfortable accommodation with adequate compensation. But leaving them at the airport lounge and when they complain you call the police for them is totally out of place ! This is why we should have our own National Carrier! Then we would have an option not to fly these people. And when they know there is competition they will sit up! But where they enjoy a route monopoly… they know you will always come back….they are at liberty to treat you as they please. #bringbacknigeriaairways.”
